    micromanagement; a lot of requirements to fulfill ; a lot of evening obligations; you can be incriminated for being friends with the wrong people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stock options vs. reward points; micromanaging does not do much for repoire

    Pros

    Terrific people first culture. US seen as the global growth engine for Daiichi Sankyo. US commercial operations are small enough to feel like a large family, but large enough to provide multiple opportunities for career development. Daiichi Sankyo actually follows through on its promises. Bureaucratic nonsense is kept to a minimum.

    Cons

    High accountability. Many job functions are performed by a single person. You either perform, and its recognized, or you don't and are held accountable. No hiding out here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Building awareness of the corporate brand in the United States. Few people know our legacy includes discovering statins, TZD's and quinolones.
